Sanchez said doing that wo...

The CDC has acknowledged the coronavirus can 'remain suspended in the air' and float beyond 6 feet, especially indoors

This photo of a sneezer caught in the act was taken by Professor Marshall Jennison from MIT, and published in a 1941 research paper.

Far-right conspiracy theorists say 94% of US COVID-19 deaths don't count because those Americans had underlying conditions. That's bogus.

Patient Doreen Mount is comforted by a radiologist in the X-ray department at the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital in Blackburn, Britain, May 14, 2020. The CDC's weekly report on US COVID-19 deaths breaks down fatalities by age, sex, race, and comorbidities — health conditions that increase a person's risk of a severe case. Because only 6% of Americans who died of COVID-19 had no preexisting conditions, some people think those are the only people who the virus has truly killed. That's f...

Even more evidence shows the coronavirus spreads easily on long plane flights

United Airlines A CDC study offers even more evidence that the coronavirus spreads on airplanes. Epidemiologists traced 16 coronavirus cases back to a single 10-hour flight where one symptomatic passenger was seated in business class. The case study showed that 92% of passengers sitting two seats or fewer away from the passenger contracted the coronavirus. It's unlikely most of the passengers on the flight were wearing masks.    Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. On March...
